Looking for a place to eat after the Jazz & BBQ Festival; the restaurants on either side were full so the 8 of us took a chance on this quiet place. First, It was nice to be in a restaurant in this city that isn't...More

Didn't know what to expect from this newer and casual restaurant - but what a great surprise it was! We took a group of 8 and decided on the chef's tasting menu. Out came amazing pastas, pizzas, apps, sides, meats, and innovative wonderful dishes. We...More

We stumbled on this place by accident. It is well located between two well known restaurants, but in many ways better than both. Parking is easy in the old Chat Noir lot. The chef is Maltese and features the kind of dishes we found in...More

Cibugnu had a little bit of everything: a talented chef, an annoying waitress whose attempts to impress us with her faux knowledge of Italian food were both ridiculous and insulting, some fantastic dishes, and some food that fell far short. We were a table of...More

We dined here because could not get reservations anywhere else . It is amazing that such a nice restaurant is not full to capacity. The food is billed as Sicilian fusion. It is certainly not typical Sicilian . I would define it as modern Italian...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
